Add New Filer Capacity By Thin Provisioning Primary Storage
NAS and file servers were designed to handle frequently changing files across organizations. This type of data is now a small percentage of overall capacity; however, NAS and file server growth still continues—often driven by legacy applications or rigid workflows. This constrains IT organizations from taking advantage of cloud-like storage infrastructure—until today.
Performance of NAS with the Economics of Software-defined Storage
FileFly for Swarm, Caringo’s incredibly resilient and efficient object storage software, is the only solution you need to thin provision your file servers, preserving NAS and filer performance while benefiting from the lower total cost of ownership of software-defined storage.
Buy a Smaller Filer, Get Massive Scale
Scale your storage to multiple petabytes and trillions of files and take advantage of today’s cloud-like storage infrastructure on standard hardware—with no application changes and transparent end-user file access.
Pay Less and Get More
Reduce storage TCO by 75% versus keeping all that infrequently accessed data on primary NAS file servers. Once on Swarm, your data is consolidated and protected, enabling robust search capabilities and secure access from any authorized application or device.
Control the File Value Lifecycle with Insight & Precision
Typical file-migration solutions often rely on a disparate mix of data management software, storage infrastructure and backup applications—perpetually increasing complexity and requiring significant amounts of manual management. Unlike those solutions, FileFly radically simplifies the file-transition process—automatically and transparently moving the right level of file data at the right time to Caringo Swarm.
Set-it and Forget-it Policies Do the Work for You
FileFly provides complete, automated file lifecycle management—from creation to preservation. Working with both NetApp® and Windows® filers, FileFly simplifies the transition of your data from NAS to Swarm. Simply select the level of file data movement based on your business requirements and reap the benefits of increased data protection, seamless and transparent file backup, and thin provisioning of primary storage.
